My books are character-driven. They're not driven by the story.

Lots of people can write a good first page but to sustain it, that's my litmus test. If I flip to the middle of the book and there's a piece of dialogue that's just outstanding, or a description, then I'll flip back to the first page and start it.

很多人都能写出好的第一页,但要保持下去,这是我的试金石。如果我翻到书的中间,有一段非常突出的对话,或者一段描述,那么我会翻回到第一页开始。

卡尔·海森

When I'm deciding to read a book, I never open to the first chapter, because that's been revised and worked over 88 times. I'll just turn to the middle of the book, to the middle of a chapter, and just read a random page and I'll know right away whether this is the real deal or not.

当我决定读一本书的时候,我从不打开第一章,因为第一章已经修改过88次了。我就翻到书的中间,一章的中间,随便看一页,我马上就知道这是不是真的。

I think it's always good for the author to stay a good cattle prod's distance from the actual moviemaking.

我认为对作者来说,与实际的电影制作保持一定的距离总是有好处的。

卡尔·海森

To me, the newspaper business was a way to learn about life and how things worked in the real world and how people spoke. You learn all the skills - you learn to listen, you learn to take notes - everything you use later as a novelist was valuable training in the newspaper world. But I always wanted to write novels.

对我来说,报业是一种了解生活、了解现实世界中事物如何运作以及人们如何说话的方式。你学会了所有的技巧——你学会了倾听,你学会了记笔记——你后来作为小说家所用的一切都是报界宝贵的训练。但我一直想写小说。

I won't be making any friends in the corporate suites.

卡尔·海森

When you're given a newspaper column, you're not being paid to sit on a fence and scratch your chin and say 'On the one hand this' and 'On the other hand that.' You're getting paid for your opinion.

当你得到一个报纸专栏时,你不会因为坐在篱笆上搔下巴说“一方面是这个”和“另一方面是那个”而得到报酬,你的观点会得到报酬。
